About the Program
Seth Rosenfeld, former investigative reporter for the San Francisco Chronicle and San Francisco Examiner, reports on the FBI's covert actions at the University of California Berkeley in the 1960s. The author reports that the J. Edgar Hoover-led Agency attempted to weaken activist student groups, including the Free Speech Movement (FSM). Mr. Rosenfeld's research draws upon 250,000 pages from the Agency's files, documents the author fought the FBI to release over thirty years.
